A Green Space with Central Park Vibes in Downtown Vaughan

By Eric Mutrie

Green space in the suburbs once meant sprawling hydro fields or quaint neighbourhood playgrounds. But as Vaughan matures into a bona fide urban centre, it’s planted the seed for a park of truly epic proportions. Claude Cormier + Associés has proposed a Central Park-style green space to anchor the office towers and condos of the new Vaughan Metropolitan Centre. The landscaping will balance expanses of sunken lawns and sweeping hills with more structured areas paved with patterned stones and shaded by trees and sculptural pavilions. A pond for toy boat races, a farmers’ market, an off-leash dog zone and a skating rink will also be on-site.
